' HAND APPLICATQR FOR VARNISH, POLISH AND THE LIKE Filed July 23 1934 (fr, a I

s a v fizwzzzaz Patented Aug. 13, 1935 PATENT OFFICE HAND APPLICATOR FOR VARNISH, POLISH. AND THE LIKE Ernest R. Erickson, Des Moines, Iowa. assignor to C. E. Erickson Company, 1110., Des Moines,

Iowa

4 Claims.

like having a thick nap can be easily andconveniently assembled on a handle or holder without the use of additional parts such as screws or bolts and will be firmly held in folded position for exposing the nap for the application of the varnish and so forth.

Still another purpose is to provide in combination with such a device a receptacle adapted toreceive wax, varnish or the like. and to be used also 3 as a container for the applicator.

It is my purpose to provide such a container which is provided with a member adapted to serve as a handle when the device is used to'contain wax or the like .and to cooperate with the body.

of the container for holding the applicator therein, and which ail'ords means for hanging the container with the applicator received therein on a wall.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my hand applicator, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure lis a perspective view of my device for applying wax, varnish, paint or the like.

Figure 2 is a plan view of the strip which is used in cooperation with the handle member for holding the carpet or the like.

Figure 3 is a plan view of the container with the assembled applicator therein and the container handle closed.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 3; and

Figure 5 is a vertical, sectional view of the container with the handle raised, taken on the same section line.

My improved applicator includes a handle A, a toothed strip B and a container C.

The handle A is preferably made from a single strip or sheet of somewhat resilient'metal. The strip is folded at-the center to form the larger part of a cylinder l0. From the sectional cylinder ill, the lengths of the strip extend away from the portion 1 in parallel portions I I.

At the ends of the portions l i farthest from the sectional cylinder i0,-the strip lengths are ex- Application July 23, 1934, Serial No. 736,571

tended oppositely away from each other to form the flanges orshoulders 12. From the flanges or shoulders 42 the strip lengths extend away from the sectional cylinder in parallel portions l3, which terminate in inwardly extending flanges I4, which extend toward each other, and are normally slightly spaced apart at their closest edges.

Thus it will be seen that the handle A comprises a single sheet of metal bent to form a portion of a hollow cylinder with parallel portions H extending therefrom and terminating in two oppositely facing channel members, each composed of a flange l2, portion 13 and a flange 14.

This handle A isassembled with a strip of carpet or the like I5 having a deep nap. The 15 c arpet l5 or the like is folded over so that the ends are parallel and close together, and are ripped between the channel-shaped members above described.

For cooperation with the handle proper and the carpet strip I5, I provide a toothed metal strip B, shown in Figure 2.

The strip B is provided with two rows of projecting teeth IS, the rows being parallel with each other and being indicated at D and E.

The respective teeth of the row D are substantially aligned with the respective teeth of the row E, transversely of the strip B. The teeth are formed by cutting V-shaped slits in the strip B, and then bending the teeth away from the strips.

The transversely opposite teeth of the respective rows are bent away from the strip on the same side. Thus the right-hand tooth of the row D and the right-hand tooth of the row E are bent from the strip and away from the observer. On the other hand, the next tooth to the left in the row D and the next tooth to the left in the row E are bent away from the strip and toward the observer. This arrangement is continued to the left-hand end of the strip B.

In assembling the carpet strip l5 on the handle A, the strip of carpet is bent double, as shown for instance in the drawing, with the toothed metal strip B between the free ends of the strip i5 and adjacent the edges thereof parallel with such edges. I

The ends of the strip I5 holding between them the toothed metal strip B are then slipped endwise between the portions 13 and the flanges H of the handle A. Care is taken to see that the flanges M are between the rows of teeth D and E. as illustrated for example in Figure 4.

The parts are so arranged that the flanges H are resiliently pressed into the nap for pressing the ends of the carpet toward the opposite sides of the body of the strip B and between the respective rows of teeth D and E. This mode of clipping the carpet strip is illustrated in Figure 4.

The device in its assembled form is illustrated in Figures 1, 3 and 4. i

In Figures 3, 4 and 5, I have illustrated the container C. which is preferably used with my device. The container C comprises a pan, with the bottom H, the upwardly inclined side and end walls '18, and pivoted handle IS. The container C is preferably pressed out of metal, although it may be made of other material. The lower edges are rounded as at 29 in Figure 5, and the corners are rounded as indicated at 21 in Figure 3. At the sides and ends, the walls l8 are provided with rolled edges 22 for convenience in handling, for reinforcement purposes, and to eliminate sharp edges. The rolled portions 22 are omitted at the corners for convenience in manufacturing.

There is a slot 23 cut in the rolled edge at the 1 back of the container and at the middle thereof.

The handle I9 is composed of a strip of metal, having its intermediate portion provided with the reinforcing ribs 24. Near one end of the handle and beyond the ribs 24, pintle tongues 25 project oppositelaterally. They are formed integrally with the handle I9, and are preferably more or less rolled to form pintles received in the rolled edge 22 at the back of the container.

As illustrated in Figure 3, it will be observed that a portionof the handle I9 projects-beyond the pintle members 25 and has a hole 25. The object of providing this projecting portion indicated at I9a is to afiord a part that will engage the back wall of the container, when the handle is raised and moved slightly beyond vertical position for holding the handle in upright position, as shown in Figure 5, so that it can be conveniently grasped for moving the container from place to place.

At the opposite end of the handle l9, it is bent to form a catch member 21 adapted to. snap over the rolled edge 22 at the front of the container and resiliently engage thereover for holding the handle in closed position as best shown in Figure 4.

The handle (9 is preferably slightly curved from end to end as illustrated also in Figure 4.

I shall now refer to the practical use of my device.

Assuming that the device isassembled as shown in Figure 1, it is then ready for use in applying wax, varnish. polish, paint or the like. If, for example, it is desired to varnish the top of a desk, the liquid varnish may be poured into the container 0. The parts are of such relative sizes that the folded central portion of the carpet strip l5 may then be dipped into the container and into the contents, such as varnish, thereof. The varnish can then be applied to the desk rapidly and evenly.

It is obvious that liquid wax, furniture polish, screen paint or the like can be similarly applied with my device.

In applying paint to screenwire, the device is properly operated, so as to give the carpet strip l a rotary motion. v

It is very easy to remove the carpet strip and replace it with another if that is desired.

I have found that a device of this kind is substantially more economical in use than is .abrush. It is more satisfactory in applying wax than is a brush, since it gives a smoother and more even application of the wax and has a better polishing effect.

It can be used for more purposes than a brush. A brush, for instance, is not satisfactory in applying furniture polish.

It is much faster than a brush in many of the uses to-which it can be put, especially for example in painting screens.

After the device has been used, the container and applicator are cleaned with turpentine or the like, and the applicator placed in the container as shown in Figures 3 and 4, the handle and described a specific embodiment of my in-' vention, it is obvious that modifications thereof are possible, and that my invention is not intended to be restricted, except insofar as necessitated by the prior art and the spirit of the claims.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a device of the kind described, a handle having resilient jaw members, provided with opposite flanges projecting toward each other, a

toothed metal strip arranged between the jaw members, and having rows of teeth, the teeth of the respective rows being inclined alternately away from the body of the strip on opposite sides thereof for engaging material between the strip and the jaws:

2. In a device of the kind described, a handle having resilient jaw members, provided with opposite flanges projecting toward each other, a toothed metal strip having rows of teeth, the teeth of the respective rows being inclined alternately away from the body of the strip on opposite sides thereof, a strip of carpetor the like having thicknap, the strip being folded double with the nap outside and receiving between its ends the toothed metal strip and having its ends gripped between the flanges of said jaws with the flanges between the respective rows of teeth. I

, 3. In a device of the kind described, a handle formed of a single piece of resilient metal folded to form a handle portion with an enlarged part at one end and a pair of spaced jaw-like members at the other end, having inwardly extending flanges, a toothed metal strip interposed between the jaws having rows of teeth, the teeth of the respective rows being inclined alternately away from the body of the strip on opposite sides thereof.

4. In a device of the kind described, a handle having resilient jaw members provided with opposite'fianges projecting toward each other, a toothed metal strip having projecting teeth, the strip being adapted for insertion between the jaws to be resiliently held for holding material adjacent the strip and between the jaws.
